Be aware that this is an old inn with lots of nooks & craneys and plenty of ambiance, not one of the stark modern hotels. We stayed here in the Veranda Room for two nights in late June. The room was large, with a great view of the harbor. The furnishings were comfortable and appropriate for the decor of the... More

Hello B R traveller Thank you for the kind review of your visit this June. we do try to keep the place looking tip top with summer restoration and ongoing maintainence well under way now that the late spring has left us and the house is having a chance to dry out.

We found good and disappointing things about Homeport. On the positive side, the extensive guest lounges created through the combining of neighbouring Italianate mansions were ideal for relaxing. Our host was friendly and eager to spend time with his guests. The whole place, however, needs money spending on it. Our room was certainly in need of refurbishment, and hardly matched... More

Hello and thank you for the review Sorry we did not live up to your expectation. The delay in our annual painting and summer refurb program this year has cost us dearly in the last few reviews. I hope people appreciate that we are constantly working on the property but there is always going to be a spot in need... More

We stayed there Mid-June 2014. Let me say it is a beautifully furnished INN definitely not your typical B&B. The initial room we were placed in was VERY MUSTY, the window sill was covered in mildew, toilet did not fully flush. This reservation was made weeks in advance, yet proper prep of this room was not done. I forget the... More

Very sorry that masslass was disappointed we will certainly strive to have the rooms more carefully cleaned and dusted. As to the musty room, Mid June is typically somewhat foggy and damp around Saint John and this year was no exception. Very difficult to get things dried out and is more a reflection of our climate than the rooms at... More

This B&B is two old Victorians connected by a first level building of uncertain age. Many steps to entrance over wooden stairs. Front door locks every time you go out; does this say something about the area? Bathroom plumbing also Victorian: claw footed tub surrounded by opaque curtain; very unsafe - no handrails or solid walls for support. Plumbing has... More

This is the sort of review that drives most innkeepers mad. This guest arrived at our door in a rather irritated mode and it appears it carried thru with them for the entire visit to Saint John. But to respond to the points they brought up . There is a set of steps from the parking area to the main... More

The antiques are exceptional - hosts very accommodating and kind - food was fresh and tasty!! I would like to take in one of the concerts that feature Canadian artists during the winter - Ralph is creating a good reputation and a following with this initiative. I recommend visiting Saint John - a Canadian City with lots to offer!

My wife and I booked two nights at this B&B. We wound up staying for an unplanned third night because of tropical storm Arthur. The location is perfect for walking down a slight hill and then along the waterfront into town. We had a harbor view room and the view was special. The B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood... More

I stayed with two other friends in the lovely Shore Garden room. We all enjoyed the stay. Although we were only in Saint John for a short one night, we were warmly welcomed, the room was clean and comfortable, and Karen provided excellent recommendations for a great dinner. We also appreciated that they were able to make gluten-free breakfasts too!... More

Sometimes it's nice to find a different place to experience and this will definitely fit the bill. Very interesting old house - well, 2 houses, joined together with a conference space between. Views to the harbour were very nice. The stairs to get into the place, as well as up to the second floor are extremely difficult to navigate (I... More
